Also, thanks to everyone who's letting me use their quest races. You'll probably regret it, but it'll be too late then.

Okay three card readings are usually past/present/future, right?

First hand:
The Moon, with a touch of Hanged Man.
The Star, with a touch of The Fool.
The Sun, with a touch of Two of Pentacles.
Moon is fear, madness, imagination, illusion, animal nature. Hanged Man involves gaining a new perspective due to misfortune, but also involves sacrifice and a "rest" of some kind. So the past of this hand involves mental troubles that gave them a new perspective on things but also slowed down their life(or someone else's?).
The Star is just all round positive stuff. Hope, healing, etc. The Fool is symbolic of beginning a journey or learning or embracing your own mistakes. So the person is learning to heal and move on.
The Sun is a card involving greatness, wisdom, and becoming your own person. Two of Pentacles is about being flexible and fun.
So the future of this person is bright and free.
I think this is Fingers' hand.

Second hand:
The Magician? Also looks a bit like The World in that there's symbols in every corner, but only the Sun and Moon. There's the crown in there which could refer to any of the royal cards or just imply royalty.
The Tower.
This hand seems to tell the story of someone who gained lots of power and authority but it's coming crashing down. We've got no clues as to what happens next. Sounds like the guy we saw get executed, tbh, in which case there would be no third card since the dude's dead and has no future. This is also the side of the table where the dealer is, and nobody else is there except ghosts, one of which is digging at the spot where the third card should be. So yeah, a dead guy.

Third hand:
Death.
Death means drastic change, either positive or negative. So a significant change in the past is all we've got here.
Looks like the protagonist's hand. I wonder what the blood is about?

Oh, I forgot to go into further detail on the second hand's cards.
The Magician is about action and power, The World is accomplishment, achieving your dreams etc.
The Tower symbolizes a great and sudden disaster or explosive revelation. It is generally seen as the most negative card in the deck, worse than Death or The Devil.

Also I can't help but notice the protagonist is tied to the table by a spider's web. Fate.
Not sure what the heart symbol and hand drawing are about, but eyes seem to be associated with justice in this setting so that further solidifies that hand's owner being Redkho.

That's a really interesting and in-depth analysis! Here's a bonus Asher.

Since this is here now, I just wanted to chime in and say that I enjoy this quest! The world-building and artwork has been pretty darn enjoyable so far and I'm looking forward to see where this will go.
